Mobile Applications Created Nearly Half A Million Jobs, Study Finds

With the U.S. economy finally showing signs of revitalization, mobile application development is a ground-breaking job market helping to taking charge in the technology revolution. According to a TechNet press release, the so-called “App Economy” has generated 466,000 U.S. jobs since 2007. Prior to that, the market had zero jobs. Computerworld reported that in 2011, the App Economy generated nearly $20 billion in revenue.

Rey Ramsey, President and CEO of TechNet has stated that “America’s App Economy demonstrates that we can quickly create economic value and jobs through cutting-edge innovation.” This claim is hard to refute and this article provides statistics supporting that jobs in this market will only increase in the years to come.
